Pre-light:

This cigar is quite good looking. The wrapper is even in color, toothy, and has quite a bit of sheen to it. I love the shaggy foot, I think it adds something. The wrapper has a very distinct chocolate caramel aroma, love it. The pre-light draw has a more coffee bean smell.

First Third

I light the shag foot and the first few puffs are pretty peppery, as expected, because of being just wrapper. After a few moments the core flavors are leather and cocoa, but the finish is nutty. The pepper dies down a little more making room for more subtle notes like charred oak and nutmeg.

Second Third

The flavors in this third have become more baking spices than anything else. The leather and cocoa have moved into the background. I’m getting lots of nutmeg and cloves. Further in things take a turn towards the earthy side, and I get more of a damp wood flavor as the main flavor.

Final Third

The final third is more of a combination of all the flavors of the previous thirds. I’m getting the cocoa from the first third, and the leather and spices from the second. The flavors have become a bit dull at the end and the cigar a bit hot, most likely because this is a young cigar.

Overall Impressions

This was a good offering from , no less that what I would expect. I don’t think it’s as good as the Unholy Cocktail or Puro Authentico, but I would put it above the regular unlimited line. I think with some time this will get better and more refined with less heat in the final third. When you take price into account, this is a very good budget cigar. I tend to like the maduro offerings more in the portfolio, but this has the potential to be up there with some more rest. I give this a personal score of 88 (Good) and look to revisit this again in a few months.
